Mike Miller SG/SF CLE 16 Hrs
Miller (concussion) returned from a seven-game absence and hit seven 3-pointers on his way to 21 points (7-8 FG, 7-8 3Pt) in the win over the Nets on Friday. He played 34 minutes.
Miller jumped right back into the fray after not playing since Dec. 4. This was likely just a one-game anomaly, but he could be a nice source of 3-pointers if he sticks in the starting lineup (and stays healthy).

Miller (concussion) will start in Friday's game against the Nets, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Miller has missed the past seven games with a concussion, but after clearing the NBA's protocol to return, he will take over for Shawn Marion in the starting lineup. This will be the first game Miller will start this season, which makes estimating his playing time Friday difficult. Teammate Lebron James has voiced his opinion several times about getting Miller on the court more often, so expect the sharp shooter to be on the court for more than the 15 minutes per game he has averaged so far this year.

Miller left with concussion-like symptoms and underwent further evaluation after the game, leading to his placement in the concussion protocol.
